Carbon Removal Specialist


Recent analysis out of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change stresses the essential need to develop and deploy technologies for actively removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. These solutions will need to be effective, sustainable and measurable.

Carbon Lock Tech is currently seeking to hire a highly-motivated individual to lead the development and implementation of a comprehensive carbon removal credit strategy. Experience with carbon life-cycle analyses (LCA), measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) methodologies, and techno-economic analyses (TEA) are very strong asset criteria, as are knowledge and experience with climate policies, carbon pricing, carbon credits, and carbon market mechanisms.

We are a cleantech start-up company with high ambitions to develop and scale carbon removal systems, processes and technologies. If you share this passion and want to help build a net-zero future, we’d like to hear from you!
